Default And how much snow ?

Yikes the 1-to perhaps 3 inch predicted snowfall for Friday turned into a widespread 4-8 inch snow. Funny thing was how the forecast continued with the same old prediction of snow to rain even late into the afternoon. Just a missed weather forecast by all the local yokels. Anyone recieve more than 8 inches of snow today? Spring is when ??

We got about 6-7 so far. Yea, I noticed the same old snow to rain to snow prediction. The "weathermen" here are overpaid, methinks! I, too can cut and paste! lol

Let's come up with a term for Pittsburgh snow. The snow that really isn't snow but contains every form of precip and looks nasty as it continues it's phase into slush. What do you think ?

Well, you could come over to my neck of the woods (literally ) and you can have some of the 8" of snow in my driveway

BTW, our local yokels got it right for a change...imagine that.

Oh, and spring will be here by June, hopefully...

Mams, where are yo located? I had just under 5 inches near Sewickley. Although by early eve the snow had compacted down to maybe 3 inches. Your giving the local forecasters a lot of credit. Last I had heard they were sticking to the 1-2 or 1-3 inches of snow changing to afternoon rain. Think the first I saw of rain was around 7:30 after a day long of snow. In a few day's we will focus on the flood threat. yikes

Hmm, I live in the city and I got at most about 3 inches of new snow before it turned to rain.

Sorry ... my attempt at humor failed miserably . I'm in Johnstown -- about 65/70 miles east of you. I'm in the Laurel Mountains. My elevation is ~1,800 ft. Didn't mean to confuse anyone. Esp. when referring to the local yokels... I was referring to WJAC here in Johnstown. They at first told us we'd change over to a mix/sleet ... but then said no, it will stay all snow, and it did. The total tally, as of this AM when I had to snowblow the drive was ~10 in We always get it worse here than you guys in PGH.

I pop in on the PGH forum every once in a while as I have family in Carnegie & Green Tree.

Mams understood ! Yes, you elevated guy's up on the ridges tend to fair pretty well as snow goes. It was sort of interesting to see the forecast change or not change as the day went along and the snow continued. It seemed most areas near the city got 3 to 5 inches of snow. Although it became so wet that the snow compacted down quite a bit. Enjoy your snow pack up there !

I was out shoveling this morning, and man, was that stuff heavy. Also, I am a delicate flower. My arm is killing me.

I got the 8" also, I am in Clearfield County, thanks to all neighbors here who do plowing driveways out of kindness, and really don't expect nothing in return, but you know I had to give something, anyone in PA likes a beer!!
